Astronaut Roger Crouch Discusses Hubble 3D

We would like to say thanks again to retired astronaut Roger Crouch for helping launch Hubble 3D at the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater. Roger is grew up in Jamestown, TN and also lived in Polk County, TN while in high school. Roger shared his inspirational story with Chattanooga State students, faculty and friends at the IMAX 3D Theater. He also spoke to two school groups at UTC's Challenger Center.

The Challenger Center in Chattanooga has a 1/5th scale model of the Hubble Space Telescope which helped Roger give this group of students from the Bright School a better understanding of this awesome scientific tool.
After a fantastic presentation about Roger's two missions aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia, these students took a virtual tour of the cosmos at the IMAX 3D Theater while watching Hubble 3D.


Roger is shown below answering questions from future scientists at the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater.

Listen to WUTC-FM's Mike Miller interviewing Roger on "Around and About."
